-field advantage and he ends up looking like kenneth the page. >> i don't think rubio will look like that or sound like that. i think he will obviously, it will be a play on immigration. it will be hopefully an economic response to the president. to your point, joe, the president has said, we've got to do something about entitlements. the question is what? what are you willing to put on the table? is he going to lay out a specific or some direction towards a specific policy. that's what republicans will look for. more importantly to your question, they have an opportunity to frame this economic argument. you still have 21 million americans unemployed. the rate is still up. you can frame that argument and say to the president, take the laundry list you laid out tonight, give us the bill and we will wait for it in the house and embrace it and work with you and the senate democrats if that's what you want. give us the bill. >> i think the whole speech is going to be in spanish so we won't know what he says. >> i can go to sleep much much earlier and wait for the translation. >> talk about a no win si

state of the union address that was a response to from senator marco rubio, response very interesting, but it's what he did during the response that has a lot of people talking this morning. lots to get to, as well. >> first there is another major developing story going on right now. dramatic developments overnight in the manhunt for christopher dorner, police now saying they have found charred remains in that burned out cabin after a shoot-out in that cabin near big bear lake, california. dorner allegedly shot two more officers, killing one of them before barricading himself in the woods. his ten day reign of terrorizing people apparently ending when a s.w.a.t. team detonated a smoke device inside that cabin and set it on fire. we still do not have positive confirmation of dorner's death even though they are now saying they have found charred remains. cops spent nearly a week franticly searching big bear. how they finally cornered the suspect. >> reporter: a hail of bullets, police radio captured the moment. a cabin burning to the ground. fugitive ex-cop christopher dorner believed i

, mr. rubio voted against raising the debt ceiling, thus provoking the credit downgrade that accompanied the fiasco in 2011. he supported governor rick scott's abominable attempt to suppress the vote in florida. he co-sponsored a bill which would enable employers to deny birth control to their employees, and despite the fact that 97% of researchers polled by the national academy of sciences believe in manmade climate change, mr. rubio remains unconvinced. if the republican party wishes to do nothing more than a small amount of cosmetic surgery on its public image, then mr. rubio seems like the perfect salesman. but scratch the surface, and mr. rubio is infected with the same old backward-facing policies that the voters rejected so comprehensively in november. thanks so much for watching this afternoon. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> new pope. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this stunning news today that the head of the 1.2 billion. person roman catholic church is retiring at the end of t
watching a pay per view wrestling match. rand paul and marco rubio, two rebuttals to the president from one party. is that a good or bad thing for the party? >> we're not a monolithic party. we have a diversity of opinions just like they do in the democratic party. the president is in the more liberal wing, and there are moderates who disagree with him on things. listen, we have work to do, after losing a presidential election two cycles in a row, to a president that had a $16 trillion debt and an 8% unemployment rate, that's not good, so there are different views on how to get us back on tract. the good news is we control a good majority of the state legislatures and 30 out of the 50 governors are republicans. we have been gaining for the last four years. so i think we're winning in some areas. at the national level, we clearly have work to do. >> all right, and look, i have to give you credit. you came out, 30 of 50 governors. let me ask you, because of the talk about the civil war, the donald trump tweet about karl rove, here is what donald trump tweeted. karl rove's strategy and commerc
